Liver injury is found in some patients with coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Both the clinical treatment efficacy and the patient's prognosis are affected by the severity of liver injury. In addition, in some cases, liver injury may occur in the absence of respiratory symptoms. To date, liver injury diagnosed based on laboratory findings and abdominal computed tomography (CT) has been reported in COVID-19 patients. The aim of this review was to summarize the mechanism of liver injury caused by COVID-19 and describe the CT features of COVID-19-induced liver damage.
